Zamfara State government has enjoined people in the state to be vigilant throughout the Sallah period and remain as brothers keepers instead of in rancor, to enable peaceful co-existence in the state to thrive.
The call was made by the chief of staff to the state governor, Engr. Abdulkarim Tsafe while interacting with journalists in a special state government Sallah message to the people of the state yesterday.
He said the call had become imperative considering the spate and proliferation of crime, especially insurgency, cattle rustling, armed banditry, kidnapping among others not only in the state but in other parts of the north and all over the country.
He advised parents not to allow their children to go far away from their homes and that the parents should monitor the kind of friends their children move with during Sallah period.
He charged Muslims to be sober and closer to God during the festivities through the spirit of sharing and extending some of their Sallah goodies to their neighbours, irrespective of their beliefs.
He also appealed to Muslims to use the festive period to ask God to continue to guide the country’s leaders on the right path, “so that the people and the nation will be better again.”
He commended the federal government for stepping up efforts in the fight against insecurity and corruption in the country, pointing out that at the state level, the state government would continue to partner with the state’s security agencies to ensure that peace continued to reign in the state.
He urged the general public to continue to offer relevant information against any suspicious movement or persons to the nearest authority, especially the police, as their confidentiality would be protected so as to avert any problem.
